Professor Yan Xuetong on international relations
Every six months the Swedish Embassy and the ECFR co-host a dinner where we invite an expert on international relations from the academic world. Our first speaker was Stanford professor Francis Fukuyama. Then followed Harvard professor Joseph Nye and professor Ian Bremmer from Columbia university.
The latest speaker was the Chinese professor Yan Xuetong from Qinghua university. The relations between the US and China as well as the relationship between China and Japan were at the centre of our discussions. Developments in the Korean peninsula were also a major topic..
